If you are a freshman online dating site for rich people, undoubtedly, you want to know how to be better at online flirting to attract rich people. Being a flirt, online or in real life takes a certain level of finesse. Some people are naturally charismatic, effortless flirts. Other people become successful flirts by learning the tricks of the trade through trial and error. Others flirt minimally or not at all. Online flirting is an art form.
I use the word flirting very casually. When I say flirting, I don't mean cheesy compliments or old-fashioned pick-up lines. Saying something like "there must be a mirror in your pants because I can see myself in it" is not flirting. That's flirting with disaster.
By flirting, I mean the art of witty and natural banter. By flirting, I mean attracting people with conversation and conversation, and building romantic relationships with rich people in a relaxed, fun, relaxed, and elegant way. In the medium of online dating, success inevitably involves using written words (your ability to flirt online) as a social skill.
It's not as hard as it seems to be to write an energetic and provocative essay. Just as there are tricks and tricks to flirting in real life, there are rules (and shortcuts) to flirting online. So, how do you put your drab "hi, my name is... "Into a series of sparkling, charming, inviting greetings? Use all your writing skills to prepare to be a real Lord Byron, because it's not as hard as it looks!
Do not be lured by the easy compliment
It’s too easy, too cheap, to fall prey to the easy compliment and the ready cliché. It’s like giving someone a ready-to-wear message when you can easily whip up some homemade haute couture. Think about it. For this awesome individual whom you’ve set your eye on, getting another message that simply says You’re a hottie or hey what’s up is probably about as exciting as breathing. Online daters are so used to it, they barely notice it anymore. If you choose to compliment, dole out a real beauty, something you’ve thought of and created just for that person. It doesn’t have to be beautiful poetry. All it has to do is not be the same old boring crap this person hears day in and day out.
Metaphors and similes, when used in moderation, are your friends
We are given this thing called language. We should have fun with it! Language serves the purpose of communication, though, in the process, we can take all sorts of liberties with it to save it from the abuses of everyday speech. For instance, we can use metaphors and similes. Though it might not be readily apparent at first, the use of metaphor is rife in the arena of the flirted word.
Here’s an example: Guess what my shirt’s made of? Boyfriend material.
Another great prompt for a possible metaphor or simile is You make me feel like… or Around you, I become.
Try it out for yourself. You make me feel like I’m finally home. Around you, I become aware of the depths of my own heart. Hey, it’s not so hard!
It’s not the size that matters, but how you use it
Write a sonnet, not a novel. Keep your responses short and sweet—at first. Later on, beautifully articulated, 17-page epics are encouraged. At first, however, you always want to make the person you’re trying to attract lust for more. Give an inch (of prose), and they’ll demand a mile. I’m not a proponent of two-word responses, but a short, two-paragraph message where each word is measured (and no words are wasted) is the online equivalent of a brief conversation that ends too soon and leaves you starving for more. There’s no shame in being coy. After all, isn’t that what flirting is all about?
Don’t reveal too much too soon — the mystery is fuel to the fire
In due course, everything will be revealed. If you date someone, they will eventually find out everything about you (the good, the bad, the ugly, and the sublime). Skeletons will eventually tumble from your closets, so there’s no point in disclosing your whole life story too soon. In the art of flirtation, evocative and mysterious statements are the word of law. Your desirability quotient is (at first) at least partly contingent on your ability to evoke a sense of enigma about your persona, to not talk too much or spill too much about yourself in the beginning in order to sustain your date’s sense of interest in you over time. In no sense is I advocating secrecy or lies—it’s important to be honest all the time, less important to disclose information about yourself unprompted and unprovoked. Wait until you are asked before you spill the beans.
Everyone loves a funny person
You don't have to be an online dating buffoon, but a little humor never hurts anyone, especially if you're trying to date a rich man online. Humor is like a shock of glamour. Who doesn't like to laugh? While humor is not an easy lesson, the best rule of thumb is to try to sound natural and situational. Tell jokes that are relevant and applicable, but don't tell silly jokes for no reason. Everyone has a sense of humor. We just show it with varying degrees of comfort.
